Austel, the project of London-based musician Annie Rew Shaw, has teamed up with electronic producer Grass Temple to release a remix of Choke – a remix which will hold you spell-bound, in a trance-like state, and a video that does the same.
Choke, from the Cold Love EP released earlier this year, was written by Annie Rew Shaw and Adam Stark, who also produced the track. Collaborating with Grass Temple, Choke has been transformed from an already haunting, “politically charged” song into a “hypnotic piece of electronica”. The accompanying video, by filmmaker Nicky Francis, is just as enthralling.
Haunting, moody dark-pop fused with electronica has already come to define Austel’s music, with BBC Introducing and o2 Music, among others, championing and supporting the artist’s EP release at the start of 2020. The Choke remix by Grass Temple invites more questions and excitement over what’s to come next from Austel.
